Summary:
TeachEngineering resource in which students construct paper recombinant plasmids to simulate the methods genetic engineers use to create modified bacteria.

Description

Students construct paper recombinant plasmids to simulate the methods genetic engineers use to create modified bacteria. They learn what role enzymes, DNA and genes play in the modification of organisms. For the particular model they work on, they isolate a mammal insulin gene and combine it with a bacteria's gene sequence (plasmid DNA) for production of the protein insulin.
